Extreme Weather—floods, volcanoes and earthquakes     enjoy the many descriptions of Noah’s ark as well as other great  deluges and disasters in history.

Beside the Bard – Shakespeare connections at Innerpeffray    delve into some drama as we display source material for Macbeth, and other contemporary connections to the great playwright.
